Why so Secretive?
Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 5/4/11 | Alaphiah

Posted on 05/04/2011 5:29:41 AM PDT by Alaphiah123

Whose I.Q. is higher Al Gore’s, John Kerry’s, George W. Bush or Barry Hussein Soetoro?

You’d probably be surprised that “W” is not the low man in this grouping. According to sources president Bush may only be surpassed by one name on this list, care to guess who?

If you guessed the former vice-president Al Gore you may be correct, but not so fast. Though Gore had an incredible hyped-up imagine of being smart , imagine isn’t everything. According to his college records he was a below average student. John Kerry whose I.Q. and academic achievements are reported to be less than president Bush's I.Q. and grades Kerry also attempted to project that he was always the smartest person in the room.

So it seems that George W. Bush was just as smart if not smarter than all of the above. (see stories here and here) I can hear your protest now, ‘Well what about president Soetoro, I know he’s smarter than Bush.” To which I ask you on what evidence do you base that speculation?

In politics much success can be had by doing nothing. In politics one nearly doesn’t have to know how to do anything; one needs to know only how to justify what one does.

My guess is that Soetoro/Obama or whatever the hell his name is was a C or D student, and I question if he even has real degrees from the schools he claims to have attended.

But...

We The People will never know who that asshole was, let alone what he did because his entire life is sealed in vaults with administrators and lawyers standing by to issue threats, and in some cases fraudulent concoctions, if anyone asks for official records.

How about this single sentence?

John Kerry whose I.Q. and academic achievements are reported to be less than president Bush's I.Q. and grades Kerry also attempted to project that he was always the smartest person in the room.

The lefties I know will tell you how many college degrees they possess, how many years they spent working for the state/federal government and how many of us conservatives just are not smart enough to grasp THEIR intellect.

In a backward way, they are right.

Most of conservatives start,own or work for business that supply the lefties with income through taxes. They’ve outsmarted us into providing them with a nice little lifestyle while we do the grunt work.

Why so secretive?

Well, if you have something to hide, you don’t go and willingly surrender them to the authorities. Evidence can be held against you, not only in the court of law, but in the public opinion of you.

People actually knew/know more about Osama than they know about Obama.

At first your tenuous grasp of English was mildly amusing and pimping your blog on FR an irritant.

Now it becomes apparent that your blog is not just a nuisance with nothing to say, but rather a malevolent presence that purveys exactly the sort of crap (trackers and malware) that people come to FreeRepublic specifically to avoid.

Maybe this is the only way to get the message across to you. Whenever I see you pimp your blog, I'm going to post the following -



Warning! Clicking on the link to this blog could result in the deposit of unwanted malware on your computer and severe compromise of your personal internet security.

(Is it really worth the risk, just to read this illiterate drivel?)

One thing I am certain of in this world. IQ has little relationship to how good or bad a student is. I was a terrible student in grade school. Why? I was bored $hitless. When they got around to taking my IQ in about the 7th grade I told “Oh now we understand.”

Obama’s records are carefully hidden for a very good reason.

If he were half as smart as his propandists in the sycophant media make him out to be, his grades would have been made public long ago.

It is more common than you think. In fact it’s probably the main reason I object to blog pimping here on FR.

Even if you don’t have detection software, you can run a little test for yourself. Go to Internet Tools on your browser. Clear out all the cookies except for your e-mail, FreeRepublic login and that sort of stuff. (I normally have 6 or 7 “good” cookies that I keep, just for convenient access to sites like this one.)

Then click on a blog being pimped here on the forum. Just pick one at random. Return to your Internet Tools file and check the cookie file. You’ll be amazed at how much crap a single click will get you. That’s how these creeps make their money. They are getting paid for leaving that stuff on your machine, along with having you read the pop-ups and ads on their site.

I should probably make the point that not all bloggers operate this way.

FReeper Jeff Head, for instance. The only things you’ll find when you go to his blog are great, well researched articles and e-books that he’ll give to you gratis if you can’t afford them.

There are other stand-up guys who blog as well, it’s just that the creeps outnumber them - by a lot.

The Abine plugin for Firefox is a winner.

Not only does it tell what evil lurks there, it also allows you to block it and also delete the nasty cookies.

Another plugin for Firefox is “Cookie Culller”.
It, too, identifies what’s lurking on your machine and has an option for permanently blocking subsequent attempts for a site to deposit the cookies, again.

For the further, deeper cleansing of a computer, the paid version of Malwarebytes is invaluable.

As far as general AV/security, I use Zone Alarm’s premium internet security suite.

1. Divinity school is not an undergraduate course of study. In almost all cases it is a graduate school.

2. It certainly was in Gore's case as he had already graduated from Harvard and returned from a tour in Vietnam when he entered Vanderbilt University Divinity School.

3. I'm not sure that divinity school is so easy. Learning Greek and Hebrew sounds hard to me.

Thanks, I am no techie. I use Avast, Microsoft SE, and Malwarebytes freebie. These were recommended by FReepers that seemed to be computer smart. I seem to have a clean machine as best that I can tell, I never see nor hear from Microsoft SE, but the Avast sets off an alarm from time to time when I hit some websites it doesnt like. I am always looking to learn more.

I would think Divinity school or perhaps Philosophy would be the easiest. It's basically memorization. There's no Calculus, no Physics, no Chemistry, none of the things that require sequential or critical thinking or reasoning.

If Gore's IQ is so high, why is he such an idiot? If Gore were so smart he'd realize that a large portion of the population sees right through his charade. If he really believed that the sea levels were going to rise why did he recently purchase beach front property in California? You can wave around Gore's high school IQ tests all you want, but you will never convince me he's smart. BTW, I've been MENSA member since I was 15. So what?

Perhaps he did not get that far, but I brought this up because you claimed that divinity school is incredibly easy. I had the opportunity a few years ago to learn about the curriculum at several different divinity schools and I noticed that some of them require study of Greek and/or Hebrew for the M. Div. degree.

The shallow mind of the electorate (and press) equates smoothness of speech with intelligence.
Someone who occasionally fumbles words (Bush); is then deemed to not be intelligent.
Sad and wrong.
This leads to slickness and packaging being the prime qualities in a candidate.

Compared to Electrical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering, my chosen fields of study, (BSAE ERAU ‘83, MSEE GA Tech ‘87) Divinity school by comparison is a walk in the park. It’s primarily just memorization. No critical or abstract thought. No reasoning. No problem solving. No math. No Chemistry. No Physics. None of the usual things that separate the wheat from the chaff. It’s a fixed target.

If Gore's IQ is so high, why is he such an idiot?

If Gore was a complete idiot he would not be so rich and would not have been able to become a leader of a worldwide movement.

If Gore were so smart he'd realize that a large portion of the population sees right through his charade.

Whether or not AGW is a reality and the magnitude of the possible effect is a question that will have to be settled by science, which hopefully will be able to disentangle itself from politics eventually.

Scientific questions are not settled by taking a vote. That is a mistake that some global-warming proponents are making. The fact that a large portion of the public vote the other way does not make them right either.

If he really believed that the sea levels were going to rise why did he recently purchase beach front property in California?

It's an ocean-view property not beach front property.

You can wave around Gore's high school IQ tests all you want, but you will never convince me he's smart. BTW, I've been MENSA member since I was 15.

So you're saying that you should not be judged as smart based on an IQ test you took in high school?

There's a big difference between "smart" and "deceitful". Gore is deceitful and devious.. If he were smart he wouldn't have to tell so many lies.

Whether or not AGW is a reality and the magnitude of the possible effect is a question that will have to be settled by science, which hopefully will be able to disentangle itself from politics eventually.

It was 36F at my home in Tennessee this morning on MAY 5th! AGM my ass. You can fall for that nonsense if you want. I've been a pilot and a student of the weather for more than 30 years. Forecasters can't tell me with any degree of reliability what the wind and temperature is going to be 72 hours from now. You actually believe forecasters can accurately predict global temperature 50 years from now? The trends show cooling, not warming and you know that big star we see in our sky every day? It's deep in a solar minimum now. The last time this happened we had the "year without a summer".

Scientific questions are not settled by taking a vote. That is a mistake that some global-warming proponents are making. The fact that a large portion of the public vote the other way does not make them right either.

Yeah, and the recent massive storms that blew through here were not a result of warming in the middle atmosphere, either. Instability that cause those massive storms comes from lower temperatures in the middle atmosphere, not higher. Search "Pacific Decadal Oscillation" for details.

It's an ocean-view property not beach front property.

Located well within where the Genius Gore claims sea levels will be in 50 years. There was an article about it posted right here on FR a while back. I'm sure you can find it if you want, but it seems you are more comfortable making excuses for Gore.

So you're saying that you should not be judged as smart based on an IQ test you took in high school?

Nope. It's what you do with your God-given talent that makes you who you are. I know quite a few people with IQ's well above Gores who can barely tie their own shoes. Lots of so-called "smart" people make really stupid choices. A high IQ simply means you have a high ability to learn. It does not mean you are smart. People with high IQ's tend to be smart because they find it easy to learn, but a high IQ does not mean a person is smart. This is a huge misconception. There are a lot of people with high IQ's who are dumb as stumps. If you want to call enriching yourself by deceiving millions of people "smart", please be my guest. It isn't my definition of smart by a long shot. The ability to deceive and intelligence are not interchangeable in their meaning.
